EFF ‘Takedown Hall of Shame’

Takedown hall of fame

We recommend you visit Electronic Frontier Foundation list bogus copyright and trademark complaints which have threatened all kinds of creative expression on the Internet. EFF’s Hall Of Shame collects the worst of the worst.

Yes, the floor is open for nominees (link at bottom right of the shame page).

H/T to BoingBoing, which wrote:

“Free speech in the 21st century often depends on incorporating video clips and other content from various sources,” explained EFF Senior Staff Attorney and Kahle Promise Fellow Corynne McSherry. “It’s what The Daily Show with Jon Stewart does every night. This is ‘fair use’ of copyrighted or trademarked material and protected under U.S. law. But that hasn’t stopped thin-skinned corporations and others from abusing the legal system to get these new works removed from the Internet. We wanted to document this censorship for all to see.”
